The actors Mary Pickford and Janet Gaynor are seamlessly appropriated from their early silent features and cast into a surreal epic with an upending of the Frankenstein story and an undercurrent of hive collapse. The third film in a trilogy examining women’s inner world, this handmade film is constructed from over 6,500 collages. Music by Lech Jankowski (Brothers Quay). |  more info
